Almost 20 years after Anna Nicole Smith was a Guess girl, her 6-year-old daughter with Larry Birkhead, Dannielynn Birkhead, is starring in a campaign for Guess Kids. There are two things I can’t believe: 1) Dannielynn is six years old and; 2) I’m writing about Guess Jeans. It seems like it was just yesterday when I was begging my mother to buy me Guess acid wash jeans with a matching jacket. One of her co-workers told her there was a Guess store in Tijuana that sold everything for 50% off and so she dragged me one there one weekend. That shit wasn’t Guess label. It was more like GuessWhosGettingTrickedByThisKnockOff label….but I still bought acid wash jeans there.
The NYDN says that Dannielynn’s ads will be all over buses and billboards starting in January. Larry Birkhead says that Guess came to them first and that Dannielynn is really excited about modeling for the same label as her mom. Larry also said that he’s not enrolling in Pimp Mama Kris’ School Of Whoring anytime soon, because this is going to be Dannielynn’s only modeling gig for now:
“People have said she’s already stepping into her mom’s shoes, and that’s very broad. I want to be clear this was just a tribute. She’s still a kid at heart, and she’s going to stay that way as long as possible. It’s really a tribute to her mom more than anything. She’s not going to be a model.
Her mom’s history with Guess was very positive. The ads were iconic and timeless. She asked me if she was going to be on the shopping bags like her mom. She was really excited about it. She had great time on the shoot. It was really just a day at the beach, playing in the sand.”
I just hope Larry is telling the truth and we won’t see Dannielynn as the new face of Trimspa for Kids.
I’m not sure how to feel about this. Dannielynn being in the spotlight is kind of weird, but somebody has to model those clothes and since Honey Boo Boo Chile already has an exclusive contract as the face of Piggy Wiggly’s children’s clothing line, it might as well be Dannielynn.
And these ads would’ve been so much better if Sugar Pie was in them.
